Amazon just ran an Ad showing off a new Kindle Fire 2, the new Kindle Touch Paperwhite, and … drum roll … what looks like a 10″ (or perhaps 11″) Large Screen Kindle Fire with a ulta thin bezel and a clip-on keyboard (or perhaps some sort of ultra thin laptop).
When available, you will find Kindle Fire 2 and 10″ Kindle Fire 2 at this link at Amazon. You can bookmark it now and check at 10:30 am PST if you like.
Here’s the Kindle Fire 2 & 10″ Kindle Fire Ad (via The Verge) –
Kindle Fire 2 – What can we tell
- There seems to be quite a bezel and it seems to be the same on all edges. Kindle Fire 1 had an uneven bezel (above the screen was thinner than below the screen).
- There seem to be buttons at the top.
- It’s very strange but there seem to be two different sets of bezels. Perhaps there are two separate models of the 7″ Kindle Fire 2.
Kindle Fire 2 10″ – What can we tell
- There’s definitely something that looks like a large screen Kindle Fire 2. It looks like 10″ or even 11″.
- There’s a power button at the bottom.
- The bezel is very thin.
- There seems to be a keyboard attached. Perhaps a clip-on keyboard.
Update: After seeing the video again it’s not 100% clear that this is a Kindle Fire 10″. It might be a strangely designed laptop or notebook. Is is a laptop from Amazon?
Kindle PaperWhite (Kindle Touch with Light) – What can we tell
- Looks very similar to Kindle Touch.
- Hard to tell how much better screen contrast is. The leaked images do suggest there is a noticeable improvement.
- They showed the Kindle Paperwhite twice.
Updates soon. Just searching for more information.
